    the commutative property gets its name from being able to move, or commute, the number around freely

    if you can remember the definitions, like the ones above, then all you have to do is apply to what you know you can and cant do

    for instance, if you have x/y you know that y/x cannot be done, so the commutative property doesnt work on division because you cant move them freely

    commutative - I like to think of commuting to work You go from home to work and then at the end of the day you go from work to home h + w = w + h mathematically 3 + 2 = 2 + 3 This allows you to add which ever way you want.. 3 + 9 or in your head 9 + 3
